Listen :: Manchester band New Luna excel on new single 'Opinionated'
Words: Sam Geary
Kick-ass new single from Manchester quartet New Luna, 'Opinionated', which at even close to five minutes in length still manages to seem too short.
Following debut single 'TrafficLightCyclopsDisco' at the back end of 2015 and last year's self-titled EP, this co-produced and mixed (with Alex Armstrong-Holding) latest fuzzy, spirited rock n roller from the band - Tommy Deedigan, Zack Bamber, Toby Duncan, Nathan Gray - which was released this week, ticks all the right boxes.
“‘Opinionated’ was for us an opportunity to set ourselves loose musically and use multi-textured instrumental sections to fill the space left by the sparse vocals and lyrics," explains guitarist Zack. "In the studio we could mess around with more backing vocals and guitar layers and create a fully orchestrated piece that should keep the feeling of being a jam. The lyrics make a simple but direct social point.”
